The Ultimate Gin Recipe Collection: Gilbert Grape
Try this easy recipe with an unusual twist for a difference. The grapes are mildly roasted until soft and caramelised and in turn it gives a profound golden sultana flavour. Great to serve as a dessert wine during a chilly evening to warm and gloss you up. The ginger brings a tangy spicy kick and the fresh thyme sprigs does its part by lending an herby aroma which tantalizes one’s senses and desires.
